1. What would be your spirit animal and why?

A wolf… Because I’ve always felt the presence of wolves. Practically a synonym for Bounge. 

2. Where did the moniker ‘King Bounge’ come from? 

Couple things; it describes this wolf-king character I draw that is kinda like a Bounge mascot, also people have referred to me as the “king” for killing beats. 

3.  At what point did you realize art was your calling?

Day one. 

4. What are a few of your short-term creative goals?

Right now I just want to flesh out all of the songs I’ve already recorded for my album, finalize them and then feel the freedom to start new projects. I also want to wrap up this video I started with a dope duo for a track coming out on a vinyl compilation.


5.  What is your most memorable moment of 2016?

2016 was intense… one night I had gotten news that an old close friend had died and then I had to work a 12 hr double at one of the three restaurant jobs I had. I had to put off grieving all day because I was at work, so when I got off, I stopped down a side street to sob. This bunch of like 10 or so kids road up on bikes, surrounded me, and realized I was crying. I told them why and they all just put their bikes down and talked to me. For me it was the highlight of a horrible week… An hour later they ended up trying to jump someone I know nearby. 

6. What three words best describe your personality?

Raw, empathetic, hungry

7.  When you die what do you want people to remember you for?

Kindness. I want to make a dent in any evil by taking all opportunities to help others. 

8.  Fuck, Marry, Kill: Shaggy, Chip Skylark, Johnny Bravo

Kill: only know who shaggy is n don’t relate to him

  1. When did you realize you were interested in art?

I’ve wanted to draw for a living since I was a kid. My friend and I would draw our own Pokémon and Yugioh cards, which sparked our love to draw.

  1. What Influences you and where do you get your inspiration?

I get a lot of my ideas of my inspiration from the people around me, music, comics/anime, and other artists.

  1. Who are your top 5 favorite artists?

My 5 right now (not in any order) are Yuji Iwahara, Kang Minjung, Catherina Bastos, Lesean Thomas, and Sanford Greene.

  1. If you could work with anyone dead or alive who would it be?

If I could work with anyone right now it probably be Kim Jung Gi. His work is amazing, and I could learn a lot from him.

  1. What differentiates you from different artist?

I believe my style sets me apart from other artists. It definitely catches people’s attention.  In addition, the subject matter that I draw and my ability to use various mediums differentiates me from other artists.

  1. What impact do you wish to leave with your art?

I want to inspire people with my art. I want those who believe they can’t accomplish their dream to see my work and realize anything is possible. I also want to create characters and work that people want to share with others.
